It appears the Democratic Party hasn't congealed its constituents? The party has formulated an appearance of togetherness The Turtles would be proud of. Yet, it doesn't appear that the words to their most famous hit mimic the Democratic Party after all. Black voters and Gay voters are arguably two of the biggest outspoken supporters. These groups were happily and generously displayed on TV in a homogenious manner. When it came to gaining the power of the Presidency, winning was impossible without cooperation. The homosexual lobby was fervently outspoken about civil rights pertaining to all groups. The Black darling
(Obama) overcame hurdles deemed unattainable by anybody other than a Whaite male. The umbrella of Civil Rights is believed to be that solely or in large part, to the Black community. As a Jew, I have seen the wavering appreciation of the Black population for the Jews that gave their lives in the darkest times of the movement. In fact, many Black groups preach undying hate and contempt for Jews without basis at all. (For older folks look to Malcolm X and Jesse Jackson. To younger minds and the uneducated, look to all leaders of the Black Liberation Ideology.)
The public has seen a display of unrest by the Homosexual population across the country towards any groups associated with resistance to Gay marriage. Yesterday on Fox, the Gay activists have decided to execute boycotts and demonstrations against any opposition parties. Displays in front of Churches and Synagogues have erupted. Businesses that have been directly or indirectly linked to opposing views have been "Scarlett Letter"(ed).
It appears to be a well orchestrated campaign to drum up support for long term resistance until passage of Gay Marriage is achieved. Is the campaign malaligned? ABSOLUTELY.
Black voters do not equate the Civil Rights movement to the Gay Marriage movement. It has become much too personal for them. The Gay voters obviously see them as exactly the same. It has even been called the Civil Rights Movement of the 21st century. By supporting the Black candidate, the Gays now feel betrayed by the Blacks as evidenced by their total and utter surprise when the agenda was completely crushed by a landslide vote. The landslide could directly be attributed to the overwhelming +70% Black vote against it.
Boycotts and protests in front of businesses and institutions that have never voter differently in the matter is an off-tangential approach. A normal pursuit would be conducted towards their own people who have deliberately strayed from support. Black churches, in particular, should have been (and now should be) the first to feel the bitterness. Mosques should be targeted and are strangely ignored. The Black Moslems have crossed a two-fold agenda in taking issue.
Where would the protests be targeted to make the most noise? Where is the debt of gratitude owed mostly to the Gay vote? Where would the action be most effective in getting this issue on the forefront of society, in the open, and on the front pages of every news media in the world? ..........If you haven't come to the conclusion yet, the answer is Obama!! The inauguration would be the best time create the circus needed for a national "town meeting."
Where is Hollywood? Where are the musicians? (silence...) Where are the Gay politicians that have been outcast from office in disgrace because of "closet" issues? (crickets....chirp...chirp..) Where are the Civil Rights leaders? Where is Obama? Where is Oprah, Maury, The View (Ugh!), and Ellen? Is anyone going to volunteer to leave the country if the agenda isn't passed" like Alec Baldwin said when he was referring to the Republicans? Who will put their ASS on the line? Strangely silent.
How I feel about the matter is not the motivation for this article. How this administration works as it inches closer to starting is puzzling and important to me! Direct the movement appropriately. I am anxious to see what music should have been played at the DNC. Does one pick David Bowie "Ch- Ch- Ch- Changes?" Or Led zeppelin's "The Song Remains The Same?" Or The Turtles "Happy Together?" I know what I would pick!
